Boston Globe

On November 4th, 2013, the Town of Needham passed six warrant articles to enable the construction and operation of a solar project at the closed and capped landfill off of Central Avenue. The articles established a new zoning overlay district allowing solar photovoltaics and authorized a 20-year lease agreement with the project's developer.

In October, Needham selected Brightfields Development as the winning bidder through a competitive RFP process that drew 11 interested companies. Once the final lease agreement is executed, the project could be up and running as early as Q4 2014.

Nigel Carr of Brightfields Development led a presentation to the Gates middle Schoolers in Thursday morning, discussing the general topic of energy, how it is produced and used, and what the solar and wind projects mean to the Town. "We're the first town completely powered by wind and solar energy, and it's something to be proud of," Culbert said.

Today, the long awaited Scituate landfill solar project officially finished construction and began delivering electricity to the local grid.

Deadlines had to be pushed back but the project will now supply half of the Town's electricity needs. "Financing these projects is very difficult, but Brightfields and their energy partners have come through," said Al Bangert, Scituate's Director of Public Works.
